I decided to take part in one of these “tagged” memes on flickr. You answer some questions about yourself and then tag the people you want to answer them after you. Cerrie Janus tagged me a few months ago, and I’m finally reciprocating :). Don’t worry, I didn’t tag you. 😉

There I am: little miss Themapants! It’s not often I share so much of my real life on this blog. That’s pretty refreshing, to be honest 🙂
Outfit Details Below:
I’ve been purposefully buying a lot of white, pearl, gray, beige, and other pale tones in the past months. There’s a side of me that gravitates towards saturated colors and darker, more mysterious palettes, but I just as eagerly reach for the innocence and femininity of a light, desaturated look.
I think this personal trend plays into my adoration of antique & retro kitsch. One of my favorite small jewelry shops is Yummy by Polyester Partridge. This sweet necklace could be a meaningful collection of baubles from your grandmother, or a recent etsy.com purchase. It’s one of my very favorite recent purchases, and there’s more where it came from; so go check it out on Tableau.
Speaking of favorite things, this sweet skirt by Nylon Outfitters and the short tweed jacket by AOHARU beg for futher outfit wrangling. I want more tweed in my real life! The top was a group gift from Pig, and I want more colors! I love how Pig tops are shaded to accentuate the tiny-titted ladies. Show it off, chicas.
Have lovely day!

I am so amped about this outfit! It’s like, totally tubular! I was refusing to buy this AOHARU top on principal (the principal that all girls who tied their button downs were bimbettes and we should hit them with our ‘sneaks). But then I saw it in this boss plaid and ate my words!
Of course to be a little bit 80s, you need a lot of hair! This super-simple style from Nylon Outfitters made my day! You don’t need 45 sculpts to look like a commercial for Aquanet. And for feckssake, it’s called Janet.
